What we're about

UPDATE - August 7, 2020.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to meet until further notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We meet every third Friday of the month (Except August) in Edinburgh, and every first Friday of the month in Glasgow.

We sing for fun, using a book called "The Sacred Harp". It uses shape notes to facilitate sight reading. Everyone welcome, no auditions! We sing loud, from the heart, no holding back.

This type of music featured in the 2003 film "Cold Mountain". It is a Capella, four or six part harmony. Like any music, it takes time to learn, but the shape notes and welcoming atmosphere are there to help you along an unexpected journey.

This music can be sung around the globe, and will get you around to sing if that's what you want. It's old, folk, not quite gospel. Come check it out! Come and go as you please during any session.

It is essentially free. Donations for room hire welcome.
